2008 - Purchased foam for new pads, covered all pads, made curtains, completed the gas system, completed the water system, installed water hand pump at sink, rewired electrical system, painted interior. (More work to come - always.)
2009 - Redesigned the tongue to accommodate the spare tire and the battery (both formerly stored inside the trailer) as well as the LPG tank.
2015 - New tent boot with additional window for better ventilation and visibility when deployed.
2016 - Frame repair - patch weld on the road
2018- Frame-off restoration after weld patch fails and additional frame breakage at weak point under leading edge of trailer shell.
Frame: reinforced, sandblasted, painted with commercial-grade, elastomeric paint thanks to a buddy in the industrial-grade tank-building business.
Body: All fittings, windows, top removed. Rattle-can paint job of previous owner stripped. Exposed robin's egg blue fiberglass body in decent shape, but painter friend had already invested in the paint we'd requested, so we went ahead and repainted it after patching old drill holes (and the old hole for the water tank fill pipe which had been relocated years ago). Windows resealed and reinstalled. All fittings reinstalled.
Roof: Re-arched and reinforced.
Wheels: sandblasted and powder coated
See tongue redesign. Plus, turned back long closet into shelved closet. And the 8 and 5 year olds designed and painted the back exterior wall. We get lots of thumbs up from fellow travelers; I think it's because of the saying the 8 year old picked.
Charging system installed from tow vehicle to 12v on tongue.
USB charging port installed.
